If a title or products name is "clickable", that means there is an entry for the book, video, or product in the "contents" listing area and you can select the title for more detailed information. Use your BACK button to get back to this page.
Note: Selecting a suitable wallet for the Card to Wallet effect is not easy these days. A search on Google and e-Bay will turn up a ton of wallets available, and most of them are not very descriptive except to say the selected card winds up in the wallet. Even this guide won't help much in differentiating between the wallets for two reasons: 1) detailing the descriptions of the wallets reveals the "secret", and I try to avoid that on this site; and 2) I don't know the details of all the different wallets anyway! If you can narrow down your choices, then perhaps you can check the on-line Magic bulletin boards for particular advice.
Note: An early version of this list can still be found at: http://members.aol.com/magic168/cardtowallet.html, which was posted back in 1998 courtesy of the site owner (firstname.lastname@example.org).
